WORKING WITH PROPERTY PRESENTS OPPORTUNITIES
THE BENEFITS of a career in real estate need no introduction and TAFE’s Certificate IV in Property Services (Real Estate) allows graduates to apply for a licence through Fair Trading and operate their own office.
The course covers auctions, strata sale by private treaty, listing, market appraisals and includes property management units. Property law is looked at. Course head teacher Raymond Dimarco said that buying and selling property was often an emotional time, and the course features lots of role-playing exercises covering everything from tribunal rental matters to handling client conflict.
The next course is starting at the TAFE Ultimo campus on October 13
An auctioneer accreditation course is also starting in October Visit tafensw.edu.au/courses
Students will be required to attend a public auction and complete several assignments.
To work in this industry you will be expected to have a current driver’s licence, modern car, be prepared to work weekends together with long daily hours.
In most cases you will be given incentive bonuses and can negotiate a strong wage, Mr Dimarco said.
